Demon Slayer Anniversary Festival Goes Digital, New Anime Info Expected

By Yali Perez

Mark your calendars for February 14, Demon Slayers! No, not Valentine’s Day. The two-year anniversary event for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is officially moving online, and information about the anime is expected to arrive!

That’s right, it’s been two whole years since the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime captured our hearts and minds, and to celebrate, Aniplex Japan and AbemaTV will be hosting the Demon Slayer Festival Online -Anime 2nd Anniversary Festival-.

Demon Slayer Online Event

Originally planned to be a live, in-person event, Japan’s COVID-19 state of emergency has moved the event to an online stream.

The festival, which features four voice actors from the series, will kick things off at 8 p.m. JST with four new Tales from Demon Slayer Academy shorts, produced by ufotable. Each new episode, as well as last year’s short, will be available on the Aniplex Japan YouTube channel following the stream.
